CTWW - Bins!

Change The World Wednesday is hosted by Reduce Footprints, an awesome blog that I came across through the Green Blog Hop and jumped right into the challenge. I plan to participate every week and hope to inspire and spread the word so that others can participate as well. If you participate, just leave a comment on the current challenge and you will get featured on the following weeks challenge. You can learn all about it HERE

Last weeks challenge:  SUCCESS! I think I only went through three outfits all week! Including one for a wedding we went to this weekend. Not bad. I hope everyone else did great to. Hubs did look at me weird because I wore the same clothes I wore on the drive up to the wedding as I did on the drive back (I never do that!). But he's glad I completed the challenge, lol.

This week is a pretty exciting one to! Read more about it below & be sure to check out the Honor Society HERE.

While visiting your blogs this week, I came across a plea for help from Petunia GreenBeans. Basically, she's asking for help with recycling ... she wants to know what works ... what we recycle, how we sort, etc. She plans to compile a list of tips, ideas and links. So ... let's put our collective heads together and come up with a list for her. Here's the challenge:

This week, visit Petunia GreenBeans HERE ( and share your knowledge about recycling. If you write a post about recycling, leave her a link to it. If you have some tried and true tips, leave those in a comment for her. And, so that we all can benefit from each other, please leave the same information here, on this post. It's double work but ... it's also double visibility for your ideas.

So what do you think ... are you up for the challenge?

So here's my thoughts/tips on recycling! Is it easy? No! It takes lots of hard work, but it can become easy and just a everyday thing! I DO NOT throw paper in the trash, I throw it in the recycling bin! So that's what I'd like to share today.... bins!

They are so important when it comes to recycling. About once a week my grandparents come and take our "Aluminum Cans" bin. They are both in their 70's, so I recently bought a bin with wheels so that they no longer have to pull or carry it. I also have some round ones for paper and another for plastic. Those have handles and are short. Since I go to the recycling center about twice a month they are easier for me to carry. You can keep a bin anywhere, inside, outside, the garage, kitchen... anywhere.

So if you are unsure on where to start start there... buy yourself 3 bins:
  • Paper
  • Glass
  • Cans
That should also help other family members get in on the action!

Until next time ...



  1. Having bins is really the key to recycling ... without them, it becomes too much of a hassle. We keep a couple of boxes in our laundry room ... they aren't fancy but they are functional. :-) I've headed over to Pentunia's "place" and left a link to this post ... just in case you don't get over there (I know you're a busy gal). Have a great week!

  2. perfect! I love keeping things simple and I couldn't agree more that having a decent recycling area is the key to success.

  3. Bins! The perfect K.I.S.S. solution! Right now we use cardboard boxes we've accumulated but they can only take so much of a beating and they take a chunk of floorspace. Thanks so much Cinella for sharing this!!

    I'm outlining away here, my goal is to do all these fabulous ideas some serious justice! Can't wait to see what we've created here, we're going to help a lot of people!! Thank you again #CTWW gang!

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
